Dual Degree with Statistics
Biography: Hi! I am a rising junior at the university pursuing a dual-degree in Statistics and Information Science. Outside of school and work I am an avid runner and coffee connoisseur!
Why Information Sciences: I am interested in majoring in Information Sciences because of its direct application to the workforce, it aligns closely to my interests and dual major, its interdisciplinary approach, and because it is a smaller program. I think that the new major is important because it is a direct example of a creation to meet the ever-growing demand of information specialists. I am a very data-driven and analytical individual. I hope to gain both knowledge in the collection and gathering of information and then use my statistical knowledge for analysis.
